Welcome by Provincial Grand Master Bro. William A. Perry
Since my last post, the Province, it’s Lodges and Brethren have enjoyed a well earned Recess, but now we are back in full swing, with Lodge Installations taking place over the next few months, I would encourage all Brethren to support THEIR Lodges during this busy session.The Commissioned Office Bearers and I look forward to being present at the Installations and in particular, to witnessing the Master and Wardens being Installed. I also look forward to seeing these Brethren at the Communications of Provincial Grand Lodge.
I would at this time, thank all Brethren who participated in the Provincial Golf and Bowling competitions with particular thanks to Bro. John Gardner and Bro. Andy Crichton for organising the events. We still have the Provincial Quiz to look forward to, Friday 1st November at Lodge St. Andrew, Coatbridge and if you haven’t entered a team or teams, there is still time. Come along and have a great night with our resident Quiz Master, Bro. Tom Davidson. Lodge Robert King Stewart are the defending Champions and are confident of retaining their title!!!
Another important date for your diaries, Sunday 15th December, our Annual Carol Service which will be held in Blantyre Old Parish Church, High Blantyre. Since it’s inception, the Service has proved a great success and I look forward to the same support of Brethren and their families at High Blantyre.
Our Provincial Caravan at Monkton had a very busy Summer, with most weeks occupied by Brethren and their loved ones. This is most encouraging and should you know of anyone in the Lodge who would benefit from a wee holiday in 2020, then ask your Secretary to complete the Application Form and return it to Bro. Willie Craig as soon as possible. We wish all Lodges, their Masters and Brethren success and happiness during this busy period and I look forward to working with you all.
Brethren, enjoy your Freemasonry and support your Lodge and the community.
